Open Evening 2017


Ryedale School is committed to combining the very best educational provision with high expectations and traditional values. In doing so we challenge and support students both to fulfil their academic potential and become exemplary young people of whom we can all be proud.
This unites us in our commitment to ‘Aspire and Achieve’.


Mark McCandlessAs one of the leading comprehensive schools in North Yorkshire, we consistently deliver high achievement. Building on our Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ judgement, we are continually developing and improving the educational experience for all learners. Our dynamic and inspirational team of staff deliver a high quality learning experience where every student has the opportunity to excel. There is a strong partnership between students, parents, staff and governors who work together to provide the very best possible support in achieving shared goals. We have established a creative and inclusive atmosphere in which individual talents are nurtured and allowed to flourish. Our extensive range of extra-curricular activities develop skills, interests, relationships and most importantly the students’ enjoyment of school life and learning.

We established the Ryedale Federation in July 2016 and in collaborating with three of our feeder primary schools, we are improving the continuity in learning between the key stages thus enhancing the educational provision we offer. Through working in real partnership with our primary colleagues we are best placed to nurture student progress in Year 7 and beyond.

We are currently in the process of growing our school to accommodate the rising demand for places. This exciting development, which will be completed by December 2017, will provide five additional classrooms and include the refurbishment of both our science and art learning environments. These developments will enable us to provide a fantastic educational experience for an additional 100 students.

Our increasing capacity means that we have some places remaining across Key Stage 3 in current Years 7, 8 and 9. We are oversubscribed for Year 7 in September 2017 but are pleased to confirm that we will have 140 places available for Year 7 in September 2018.

I hope you can attend our Open Evening but if you are unable I would welcome parents to come and see our school in action during a school day and experience for themselves our unique ethos that supports high student achievement.

We are very proud of our school and hope that you will join us in the unique and dynamic learning experience that is Ryedale School.
